David Lloyd, writing in the Daily Mail, on Ajantha Mendis' variations, Jonathan Trott's unending innings, the incentive for left-arm spinners to make a comeback this summer and more.
They reckon the Sri Lanka spinner Ajantha Mendis has got four different variations. But as far as I can tell, they all go straight on. It reminds me of lettuce. You've got cos lettuce, iceberg, Swiss chard and arugula - but at the end of the day, there's no getting away from it: they're all just lettuce.
